This is the superior sized giant among the selection of very large Melchor cats we've received. At nearly two pounds this awe inspiring leon is attuned in an array of orange globes. This is probably the most massive carving in our gallery and the detail is superb. The carved mane is quite impressive as is the stance and overall stature of this king of beasts.

Margarito Melchor is a legacy artist found in nearly every publication pertaining to Oaxacan Art. Handcrafted by a master carver, this majestic lion exudes raw power and fierce beauty. It's truly a work of art and a must-have for any collector of Oaxacan art.
